Re: fglrx-driver still slow



I've a Radeon 9250
It is supported with free drivers and fglrx

I tried both

With fglrx if I enable the Composite extension, I've a message as it disable dri. Without dri, it is slow, with dri I've slightly better performances than with free driver... but I miss composite.

Hello all,

I have got the fglrx-driver installed, but, because of some reason, it
is
still rather slow. Although all 3D-functions are o.k., and
fgl_glxgears is
running, the kernel-module and the driver are loaded correctly it is
still
slow. Please look at the result of fgl_glxgears:


fgl_glxgears
Using GLX_SGIX_pbuffer
207 frames in 5.0 seconds = 41.400 FPS
296 frames in 5.0 seconds = 59.200 FPS


Please note: I do NOT believe, the driver is buggy, I still believe,
that
something else does not work correctly. My notebook does have no AGP,
but
PCIE port. Is there some special kernel-module I have to load
additionally ?

This is my lspci:

As I search now for some weeks, I do not know, where to look any more.
I
stopped for testing every ACPI-processes, to avoid braking the system
by the
cpu, checked xorg.conf for many, many times and did many things more.

Now I am really desperated, as I do not know, where to look any more.

How can I find out, that the PCIE-bus for the graphicscard is working
fast
(2x, 4x, 8x) ?

How can I check step by step, if all the "X"-relevant parts are
running well ?
Is there a way for checking this at all ???

Again: I am really sure, the driver itself is o.k., and the reason IMO
is
either a configuration error or a missing kernel module.


Please help !

Thank you very much in advance !

Best regards

Hans
